Following the success of last year’s inaugural effort, the Dave Creamer Memorial Bursary Fund Hockey Pool is back for the 2011-12 NHL season.

First-place prize is $1,000 with second place $500 and third place $200. As well, the 50th place, 100th place and 150th place finishers each pocket $100.

Entry is $20 and poolies can enter as many teams as they wish. The deadline is Thursday, Oct. 6, so get those entries in as soon as possible.

Just pick one player from each of the 15 boxes (the official entry form with complete details is on page B9 of today’s Record and will also run in the Friday, Sept. 30 and Wednesday, Oct. 5 issues). Mail or drop off your entry form with a $20 cheque (payable to Leading Edge Hockey Development) or cash at: Bursary Fund Hockey Pool, 555 Nimpkish St., Comox, B.C., V9M 3E4.

Poolies will be e-mailed a login and password from HockeyDraft.ca where they can keep track of their team(s) all season long. The site includes standings, stats, live stats, injuries and even trash talk.

Prize winners will be notified via e-mail and their winnings sent out in the regular mail after April 17, 2012.

While poolies will divvy up $2,000 in prize money, the big winner is a Highland Secondary School student as all proceeds are donated to the Highland Parent Advisory Council for a bursary.

The hockey fund bursary was started by Pati Creamer in memory of her husband Dave, who passed away in May, 2009. Dave made many friends through the golf industry and his deep involvement with hockey over the years developed numerous relationships with youth in the Valley. Pati runs Leading Edge Hockey Development.
